Don't feel like going out? Make bartender Max Borrowman's Mexican Wrestler and more at home.
Summer is fun, but let’s face it, a jam-packed social calendar can be downright exhausting (on our minds, bodies and wallets!). Lucky for us, Juniper’s bar manager Max Borrowman has come up with a tasty solution: he’s crafted three refreshing, perfect-for-the-season cocktails and he’s shared the recipes with VanMag. Now, whether you’re sipping a casual after-work bev or hosting a low-key patio party, you’ll feel like you’re on the beach (or at your fave local watering hole!) even though, in reality, you’re in the comfort of your very own home.
